Usually used for marine rope work, the Marlin Spike is shaped into the form of a metal cone attenuated to a round or flattened point. They’re used for such tasks such as untying tight knots, unlaying rope, and even as a toggle to join ropes that are under tension. Fun fact about this particular fid; the reason this particular one is called ‘Grimes Spike’ is that the creators think it’s something Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead would use on zombies! This device is handmade from ½” diameter brass and would make the perfect addition to your camping EDC. To make it even more convenient, it comes with a lanyard for easy accessibility and usage.
